Ratings and Reviews
Best Platform For All Athletes!
This is by far the best app for any athlete looking to get picked up by a recruiter! You have the ability to set your own personal profile, list your stats, personal information, and your own personal highlight tapes. You can also check out other athletes profiles and connect with them. And the best part about this is that college recruiters can check you out on the app and keep in contact with you using the chat feature! I’m just so happy that young athletes have this opportunity now!
